A special edition, looking at the stories of three women in the US workforce. We begin with Maria Bueno, who left El Salvador as a teenager and now runs five businesses in the US. Jane O'Brien asks whether attitudes in the Hispanic community are keeping pace with rapid changes in education and technology. Plus, we hear from the working mother who heads up communications for one of the world's largest public transport companies and still finds time to write erotica for women.
